The Scorch Trials
Transcript of The Scorch Trials
by James Dashner The setting is a place called the Scorch.
The Scorch is a deserted desert-like place
in what used to be Mexico. Brief summary The story begins when the characters in the book wake up at a camp. The characters have to complete a test. The test is they have to cross the scorch in two weeks. The scorch is desert land filled with cranks who are sick with the flare, which is a
disease that is highly contagious and makes you act
zombie-like. The flare causes you to act completely different and eventually will kill you. Quote from the book "I'd never kill a friend to save my own butt. Never." (page 272)
I chose this quote because it shows Thomas' character. He is the kind of friend who would never
hurt anybody. Main Conflict/Theme Person vs. Nature: The characters of the book try to
cross the scorch which is very hard to do. While they are crossing the scorch, they are trying to fight the cranks. It is very dangerous and some of the people die. The conflict is resolved in the end of the book.
"The wind had gained a rough edge, pelting him with sand and grit until it hurt. Every once in a while a larger object would fly by, scaring him half out of his wits. A branch. Something that looked like a small mouse. A piece of roofing tile. And countless scraps of paper. All swirling through the air like snowflakes." (page 133.) Main Character
Thomas is the main character of the book. He is brave and humble and a very nice guy. That is why I liked his character.
"Maybe for the first time since entering the Glade weeks earlier, Thomas felt no fear. He didn't know if he'd ever feel it again. He didn't know why, but something had changed." (page 342).
I In conclusion, I really enjoyed this book. It is fast-paced and has lots of action. I like how people had to cross such a powerful force of nature. I would recommend this book to people who enjoy action and drama.
